In this section we want to publicise resources which tell the Bible’s story through film.
Individuals, parishes or schools wishing to explore the Bible through film might want to start by looking at the LUMO project. LUMO has made the text of all four gospels accessible for modern audiences in a series of beautifully shot films, over which the text of the gospels are read. All the films can be purchased online, but are also freely available on YouTube.
Further useful resources can be found at the Jesus Project, an evangelical film ministry which makes many Christian films- often, dramatisations or reflections on Scripture- freely accessible online. Whilst many of these are well-produced and suitable for use in Catholic parishes or schools, we would note that some of the doctrinal positions laid out the in project’s statement of faith are at odds with Catholic teaching, meaning that Catholics should excercise discretion when using resources from this site.
We will try to keep this page updated with further film resources, but if you know of other helpful films or videos, please let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
